The Federal Government through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has condemned the coup d’etat which took place in Sudan on Monday.


Sudan’s top general earlier on Monday declared a state of emergency,
dissolved the leaders of the country’s democratic transition, and
announced the formation of a new government.


This was followed by soldiers detaining civilians, an action also
condemned by the Federal Government in a statement signed by the
Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Esther Sunsuwa.


The statement read, “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Federal
Republic of Nigeria strongly condemns the coup d’etat that has taken
place today in Sudan, in which the military has dissolved the civilian
component of the transitional government and arrested its leaders.
